You will also learn about which foods naturally whiten teeth (think apples, celery and lettuce), and which foods to avoid or eat to boost your energy.

The book endorses a whole-foods diet as well as supplementing with vitamins, minerals and certain herbs.

Yoga, which is one of Dr. Oz's favorite forms of exercise, is encouraged as well as other cardiovascular activities and strength-training exercises. You will learn why certain exercises reduce further bone loss which can lead to osteoporosis and why walking is not just a great way to reduce stress but to also boost your energy.

From skin care to hair care to the DIY spa treatments, YOU: Being Beautiful is full of information and helpful advice.
